About me

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist and I have over 15 years’ experience of working with adults aged 18 and over. 

Due to Covid-19 restrictions I am offering daytime/early evening appointments using video (via Zoom) or telephone between Monday and Thursday.  I do not offer weekend appointments.

I offer a professional, confidential and supportive setting to enable you to explore issues and express your feelings in a safe, non-judgemental environment.

Whilst I am true to my chosen modality of counselling, I also integrate different ways of working to suit the individuals that I work with, including using art therapy skills, where appropriate.

I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I have my own Professional Indemnity Insurance.

I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy, which is a successful treatment for Trauma and is different to my counselling work. Please contact me to discuss your requirements if you are considering EMDR.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Person-Centred (Rogerian) Counselling and Psychotherapy
Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Practice for Person-Centred Therapists
Certificate in Person-Centred Art Therapy Skills.

As a Counsellor/Psychotherapist it is essential to continue my own personal and professional development to aid my practice and I do this by attending workshops and courses for a range of issues which include: bereavement, anger issues, relationship difficulties, trauma, depression and anxiety.

I am also on the Private Practice Register and am recognised by the following Private Healthcare Insurance Providers:



Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Accessibility for wheelchair users at both venues is limited. Please contact me before requesting sessions, I can help you decide whether it is accessible for you.
